There's a lot of stuff in the cam chest in the Twin Cam that wasn't in the old Evo and earlier engines. When is the last time you had the cam chain tensioners inspected? These pieces wear out over time. The Evo's and Shovels didn't have these pieces to wear. Also, you've got two chains in there, these could be making the noise. Also a LOT of bearing in there and any one or more could be making the noise. Now, I think Harley extend the warranty on everything in the cam chest out to 50,000 miles but you'll need to confirm that with them. Call Harley's customer service dept and have your bike frame VIN number handy.

Good Luck
Steve

New holland ts 120 oil pressure to high where is the pressure relieve valve situated? the oil pump is in the dif.


There is no relief valve on the oil pump.
The valve is on a housing near the oil filter
Normal pressure with HOT oil is 15 to 20 PSI at tick over and around 60 PSI when the engine is reved up
Note oil pressure can be as high as 90 psi with engine oil cold and engine reved up

are you sure the noise is comming from pump and not the belt tension pulley right next to it ?

I use a wiffle ball bat with both end caps cut off (hollow tube) held to my ear to help localize noises on running engines I have even found tricky intake vac leaks with that trick

We had someone put a new water pump in and now it has got a whining noise! It didn't do it until he put it back together! It doesn't sound like a bad water pump! What could be the problem!


Start car and use a stethoscope.
Start car put car in park and and listen for the noise by placing the scope on any item you believe the noise is coming from. if this does not help you confirm where the noise is coming from do the following:
Do you still hear whinning? put car in park after start up and listen for noise.Do the same in neutral. What do you hear? Drive vehicle in all gears. If you hear whinning in all gears its the oil pump inside the converter. Have this verified by a transmission repair shop.

Saturn vue, whinning at 45 -50mph,and in neutral,rubbing noise at15 to 20mph


if the car is neutral and not moving and is still making this noise it is probably in the engine, possibly in a pulley or engine component, waterpump,alternator, p/s pump check all these and see if they are making noise.

I have a 1998 Jeep Cherokee with a 4.0L engine. The oil pressure gauge usually stays around 40 on the highway but when I come to a stop it drops down to 10. Is this normal or is my oil pump getting ready...


No this is normal. As an engine wears then oil preasure will be less this is not due to a weak oil pump but wear in crank shaft bearing's. When an engine is new and bearings are tight then oil preasure wont fall a lot from reved up to idle as the engine wear's oil escapes quicker from the crank shaft bearings. Reved up oil preasure increases idle it drops off. If the oil light stays out then their is enough preasure to lubricate the engine. In fact in an older engine high oil preasure is a worse complaint as this means the oil system is clogging. All is ok with your pump. If the oil preasure is moving up and down at constant rev.'s then the oil pump is faulty. Hope this put's your mind to rest.

98 fatboy engine noise.


Harley's do run hot, anywhere from 220 to 240 normally, and a little hotter this time of year. I suggest running a straight weight oil, and a little heavier weight in the summer. I use Valvoline VR-1 30 weight most of the year, and 50 or 60 weight in the hot summer, and I use Lucas 20w50 primary/trans for the primary and tranny. I don't bother with the extremely high prices of the HD oils. For the whining noise, you need to determine which side of the engine it's coming from. Whining will almost always be in the bottom end. There's nothing in the top end that should whine, and if there is whining from the top, it's usually an air leak around the carb. Start by checking the fluid levels in the tranny, and primary. These are the two most common areas to pick up a whining noise. If it's coming from the left, it's going to be in the primary, and usually this is caused by low fluid levels. From the right, it's going to be either the tranny, low fluid, or the oil pump. The oil pump is a gear type system. If you're running a light weight oil, say a 10w40 or HD 20w50, when the engine heats up and the oil thins, it can cause the oil pump gears to whine a bit, especially in the summer heat. So, check the fluid levels, if they check good, then change the oil, since the summer is coming to an end, go with a straight 30 weight. This should clear up the whining noise. If it doesn't, get back to me with the exact location the noise is coming from, and we'll go to the next level of diagnosing the whine, but I believe that this will cure it.
